He went on to say that the Fed "has become a little nice" and made a big mistake by raising interest rates. Trump added that the recovery from the 2008 financial crisis was "the worst in our country's history," and said President Obama threw a lot of "zero, funny" money, while "paying interest at a high price because of feeding it."
